    Prepare to have your accent mocked all year! I'm 1 out of 3 northerners (South Yorkshire) in a block 40 people!

    Southerners. Southerners everywhere.

    Hello everyone! I have Leicester as my firm choice. Hopefully will be studying modern languages with translation, just looking for thoughts on accommodation. Which ones are more social etc. I'm so indecisive and currently stuck between John Foster and GMS at the moment!

    GMS and Beaumont seem to be the most sociable that's what most people have been saying anyway!

    I'm in Beaumont in Sept

    Hi everyone!! As I firmed Leicester yesterday, it's high time I started thinking about accommodation! But tbh I don't really get the difference between the different types of room. They do explain a bit here http://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/accommo...ypes-explained but there are still a few things I'd like to be sure about. As for example in which room is there a private bathroom??
    Thaaanks in advance

    Lol, I think the accent thing works both ways, I often get mocked for having a southern accent but in the end it's all mostly banter

    Hi everyone,
    I haven't seen all the comments before but I watched this thread last year and am now getting notifications that this thread is quite active.
    I am a first year in Digby Hall and I absolutely love it there so I advise you to apply for Digby Hall if you can, it's honestly the best value for money block (if it's still the same price as it was when I applied last year!). It's also the closest to ASDA which is honestly more of an issue than you think as you will probably be making a lot of trips to there at random times so it helps to be close.
    All of my friends who live in different blocks have said it is the nicest block they've seen and I agree with them.
    If you have any questions then feel free to message me or reply to me on this thread

    And to add to the North/South accent ridicule issue, I have a flatmate from Hull and we rip him... a lot.

    If you're wanting your own bathroom, then that'd be an ensuite room. Anything with a '+/plus' just means it's a bigger room

    Digby is nice inside, however from the outside it looks very bland you have to agree.

    The distance from Beaumont/GMS to digby is about a 2 minute walk down the road. It isn't that much closer to Asda.

    Without a doubt it looks bland from the outside, it looks terrible, but the inside is what matters as you're living on the inside. I've not been to a hall that's nicer for what you get money wise.
    And yeah that's very true, I was talking more in terms of John Foster being a lot further away than Digby to ASDA

    Does anybody know with how many days before the start of the term are you allowed to check in to your accommodation? If your course starts on september 29th, can you settle up a week earlier?

    I mean, does somebody know the exact dates of an accommodation contract? (I'm mostly interested in the 42 weeks contract )

    Like 1/2 days before hand. Usually on the weekend and term starts on the Monday.

    Hi - my friend lives in Kent House
    Its quite big - I think theres about 16 people in it of mixed gender, not so sure on that though:P
    If you've been to Leicester, its the big house opposite S-bar
    What I've seen of it, theres a decent kitchen and separate dining room downstairs and its all old-looking and wood panelled, and upstairs theres another kitchen/dining room combined. There may be another one as well, not sure on that:P
    Rooms are pretty big
    The one thing I'd say is that theres a bit of a ladybird problem - they live in the woodwork of some of the window sills but they're harmless :P
    Also, if you see any wasps let the accom team know as soon as you can - last year there were several wasps nests in the roof!
